SABC Deal - MultiChoice Accused of 'Kickbacks'

MultiChoice accused of 'kickbacks' in SABC deal

The minutes of a 2013 meeting between the SABC’s interim board and MultiChoice have shed more light on the controversial deal between the pay-TV broadcaster and the public broadcaster, raising heated concerns – especially about competition law – from both the Democratic Alliance and civil society groups Media Monitoring Africa and the SOS Coalition.

The minutes are among the hundreds of documents that the SABC was ordered to provide to Parliament’s portfolio committee on communications during its damning inquiry into the SABC board earlier this year. The document in question was discovered by DA spokesperson Phumzile van Damme as she steadily made her way through the documents this weekend.
